20 Years CRASSH Anniversary Programme

11 January 2021 - 23 December 2021

CRASSH

20 Years CRASSH

A year-long programme of events to celebrate CRASSH's 20th anniversary on the theme of Global Conversations. 

 

CRASSH is the humanities version of the collidor found in particle physics, or even, to borrow a word coined by James Joyce, a ‘collideorscape’, generating new knowledge and insights from the concussion of different ways of thinking

– Professor Steven Connor, Director CRASSH 

 

 


 

Open Calls for Art, Writing and Film

Submit your work for the CRASSH Online Art Exhibition, CRASSSH Online Publication and the CRASSH Film Festival.
The theme for all three competitions is 'Global Conversations'.

 


 

Thoughtlines Podcast

Thoughtlines is a brand-new monthly podcast series from CRASSH – the place where people gather to ask the big questions on who we are and why we live the way we do. In Thoughtlines we join that conversation and connect the dots in twelve different research journeys, from decoding the politics of your digital assistant to how consumer power helped end the slave trade. Wide-ranging, accessible, surprising and also deeply personal, Thoughtlines brings you the best of academic thinking outside the box. Episodes can be found on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify as well as other podcast platforms.
